He's So Hot

German-American violinist David Garrett developed his talent from the age of four. Now 28 and a Julliard graduate, Garrett's repertoire spans Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" to AC/DC's "Thunderstruck." Garrett combines classical music with modern genres to bridge these worlds. The audience sat rapt during his rendition of Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir," the best example of how Garrett opens the ears of the young to classical forms while engaging older folks with rock.

My favorite piece was a melancholy composition of Garrett's called "Chelsea Girl," which rang a somber note for the local audience who were aware of the search of a missing San Diego girl by the same name.

The passion shows in Garrett's face, at times twisted with intensity, or radiating a joyful bliss as the notes trickle from his instrument. With his model good looks, Garrett is a pleasure to watch as well as hear. As our neighbor at the concert, a 40-something blonde who drove from L.A. for the event, gushed, "He's so hot."
